A sea creature from the beliefs of the Inuit people that had the upper half of a human and the lower-half of a fish. However unlike most Merfolk the lower fish half had no scales but was covered in fur like a polar bear. The Auvekoejak is also the name of a species of seal from the same area. An explorer from the 18th century asked the local people if this creature was in fact a seal but the Inuit firmly stated that the Auvekoejak and the seal of the same name are two distinct creatures.
